Seb Lowe, one of Manchester’s most exciting and fastest-rising new artists, has just announced a series of new tour dates in 2024 following a stellar year for the abstract singer-songwriter.
Backed up by four equally talented bandmates, the up-and-coming alternative artist from Oldham is undoubtedly one of the best new acts we’ve come across in a while.
After releasing his debut album Half-decent back in 2021, the 19-year-old who hails from the village of Delph, Seb Lowe has found himself on the radar of BBC Introducing, Rolling Stone, XS Manchester and many others, including fellow Greater Manchester stars, Blossoms, who recently asked him and his band to join them for their massive Wythenshawe Park show next summer.
Following on from his first-ever UK headline tour, Lowe is now set to bring his unique blend of indie, folk, punk and acoustic to even more cities across Britain in 2024 — including a glorious homecoming show here in Manchester, of course.
If you’ve never come across Seb Lowe before, you can expect everything from 60s and 70s vibes to the fully graduated contemporary indie from the local youngster but with each track, you’re almost always guaranteed the instantly recognisable style of his protest song lyrics and socio-political subject matter.
With a lead violinist adding even more signature sound to his deeply individual and yet somehow retrospective approach, we’ve seen the Roughyed live on a number of occasions now and his energy on stage never disappoints either.
Revealing just eight dates in 2024 so far, on top of the massive Blossoms gig and other support and festival slots that are sure to come, Lowe is set to play the O2 Ritz in Manchester city centre on Friday, 12 April, with warm-up acts and special guests for each show still yet to be confirmed.
All we know is that as one of the most genuinely interesting artists to come out of Oldham, specifically in a long while, as well as one of the most different you’ll find anywhere in the region, we’ll be putting this on our gig list for next year. This short clip alone should be all the convincing you need:
- The National named as next act on lineup for Sounds of the City 2024 at Castlefield Bowl
- Clubland’s massive arena tour is returning to Manchester for 2024
- Year’s End, Manchester’s newest music festival, is coming to the city centre this December
General sale for Seb Lowe at the O2 Ritz in Manchester and all other UK tour dates goes live at 9am on Friday, 17 November.
